dough nuts?

I've fallen back in love with bread. Thanks to my BFF, I've made whole wheat bread, white bread, and pumpkin banana bread, all easy and delish. So yummy straight out of the's no wonder I eat so many carbs. If you want an easy bread recipe, you have to try this one - you'll love it too!

I've been sticking to my word about said "month of meals" (and my bread doesn't even count.) Is it plain silly? I mean, do people do this all the time? Maybe I'm not so special to actually cook food with fresh ingredients every night? What's a typical dinner for you after working all day?

For me, I wanted to attempt this because we eat out 2-3 times a week, so I wanted to cut down on the expense there and the added calories. I'm not even talking about pricey food when we eat out - we just have our favorite standbys that we're bored with. Corner Chinese carry out, favorite Mexican restaurant, local deli, and of course pizza take out. Oh, how we are the connoisseurs of pizza places. You never really know where the food is coming from and my guess is it's not even remotely organic. Keep in mind, I prepare separate food for E, so he's not in on all this take out. And, there are so many fresh foods that are plucked right from the farm that I have never even tasted. For all of these reasons, I need to cook more at home.

Most recent meals? Apple/cheddar/honey melt sandwiches with roated root veggies and hand-mashed potatoes with spring onions (hubs sammy was a turkey melt).

The night before that was homemade pizza (real dough is so easy!) with fresh mozzerella/mushrooms/basil and Italian side salads. Hubby's pizza was strictly quarantined with his pepperonis.

You ask what E thinks? He'll eat anything, especially if daddy goes first.

Excuse me, I need to handle my business.

  1. Would love the dough recipe! Pizza is one of our favorites. But for the same reasons, I'd like to learn how to make my own at home.
